    sarah1986 New Egg

    Mar 22, 2016
    I made one out of a tank. I have a humdifier in there and it is steady at 55. I have a heat lamp and it is steady at 100 or 102. I was told to put the eggs laying flat down in a towel. When I did this I felt the eggs weren't warm. So do I cover them up and leave temp at 102 or uncover and leave heat light on them at 100
